Last year I posted about how I was choosing one word to make the focus of 2009. I knew I wanted to do it again this year but I hadn't thought too long and hard about it yet. Yesterday I spent the day with my hubby. We drove south to do some errands and caught a 3-D IMax movie (Avatar - it was wonderful!). One thing I wanted to do if there was time was stop at Wal-Mart or Target to check out the after-Christmas sales. When I walked in the first thing I spotted was a glittery stand-alone word. It was "hope." And that seemed to really sum up what I want for 2010 - HOPE.
And considering my all time favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11, it seemed to fit.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
